HELP! Artsy Needs to Find a Home!

31 Aug

Hiya Artsies!  Most of you know, my hubby is a medical professional who works as a “traveler”– he takes contract assignments all over the Pacific Northwest and the West Coast.  We are finally getting to use his California license and will be headed to Joshua Tree, CA in October!  We’re super excited to finally spend some time in Cali, be near friends in San Diego and I can’t wait to explore all the artsiness of SoCal!

With each new place we go, I spend hours perusing the internet, looking for furnished rentals, when I’d much rather be searching for fantastic artists to share with you!  So far, we aren’t having much luck in Joshua Tree– there are lots of rental options, but few are very budget friendly!😉

So I’m asking, begging, pleading ( dramatic, much? ).. if you have any connections in the Joshua Tree area or know of anyone who may have a home  in or near there for rent, please let me know!

Also, I’m taking suggestions for galleries to visit in the San Diego, Los Angeles and Palm Springs/Hi-Desert areas.  Hit me with whatcha got.

      Mr. Forager will be actually be working in the small town of Joshua Tree. Salton Sea is way to far for us to live there, although we do definitely plan to visit!

    Hi there. I live in San Francisco; however, my brother lives in Newport Beach and he has many SoCal connections. I will put a bug in his ear to see if he has any contacts in Joshua Tree. You are going to love it there….so beautiful and tons of camping and hiking if you enjoy that sort of thing. What an adventure for you two. How exciting. Be well and I will get back to you if I hear of anything worthwhile. Cheers!

      Thanks so much! I think we’ll enjoy our time there, once we find a place to live.😉

    http://www.rent29.com/ here is a link you might like not sure what your budget is like. When I’ve had to make moves in the past I’ve found calling a local real estate office pretty handy. Good luck.

      Thanks, I’ve already been in contact with the folks at rent29. Incredibly friendly & helpful, but nothing available for what we need.😦
